  • 2001: A Space Odyssey is a countdown to tomorrow, a road map to human destiny, a quest for the infinite. It is a dazzling, Academy Award®-winning visual achievement, a compelling drama of man vs. Machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. It may be the master-work of director Stanley Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke)... and it will likely excite, inspire and enthral for generations.

    To begin his voyage into the future, Kubrick visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever conceived) into colonised space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Kier Dullea) into unchartered realms of space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let the awe and mystery of a journey unlike any other begin.

The put-on-a-show plot spins merrily full of snappy banter and new faces Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers. The show-stopping numbers (Shuffle off to Buffalo, You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me and the title tune) still dazzle. 42nd Street shows good times never go out of style.

  • A Star Is Born marked Judy Garland’s return to movies after a four-year absence, director George Cukor’s fi rst musical and fi st colour film, and a showcase for great Harold Arlen/ Ira Gershwin songs in state-of-the-art stereo. Garland is singer Esther Blodgett, an undeniable talent on the rise. She catches the eye of Norman Maine (James Mason), an alcoholic actor in career decline. Their intense love transforms them both. 

    Only one will survive Hollywood’s slings and arrows. Shortened after its premiere, the movie underwent one rebirth in 1983 when film historian Ronald Haver found almost all the cut sequences and supervised a reconstruction to near its original length.

Now watch it sparkle as never before.

  • ’S wonderful, ’s marvelous: Gene Kelly, producer Arthur Freed, director Vincente Minnelli and an ace creative team conjure sheer screen magic, one of the American Film Institute’s Top-100 American Films.

Dance sequences spun around Gershwin songs accent Kelly’s romantic pursuit. And the final 17-minute ballet –combining the title symphony, Impressionist set stylings and Kelly’s unique talent for telling a story in dance –lifts this winner of six Academy Awards® including Best Picture® into the ether of timelessness. Love Is Here to Stay Kelly sings. So is An American in Paris.
